Trying to deploy instantclient 188.8.131.52 w/ODBC on Windows XP.
Unzipped files to c:\oracle\instantclient_11_2.
Added c:\oracle\instantclient_11_2 to path.
Created/set TNS_ADMIN environment variable.
Running windows ODBC Data Source Administrator to add Oracle data source gives following error:
"The setup routines for the Oracle in instantclient_11_2 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 14001."
Click OK. Next dialog box says:
"Could not load the setup or translator library."
The instantclient 184.108.40.206 distribution works fine with the same setup procedure. I'm not new to instantclient--been using it for at least a year with great success. Just trying to use the latest version of the instantclient software on this computer. I also notice that the 220.127.116.11 base distribution includes a number of dll files that are not included with the 18.104.22.168 base distribution. These include a number of mfc*.dll and msv*.dll files. Does instantclient no longer support XP installs as of the 22.214.171.124 release? Did Oracle forget to include a bunch of dll files in the base 126.96.36.199 window x86 distribution? Did the deployment procedure change between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206? Am I installing 220.127.116.11 incorrectly?
We can fall back to the 18.104.22.168 distribution temporarily. But I'd like to get the newest 22.214.171.124 distribution working for our XP computers.
